Meet Our Founder

When Jenn isn’t home educating her teen or reading a book, you’ll find her eating peanut M & Ms and drinking some caffeine while playing Animal Crossing.

Our Quest

The dream of The Bookish Society, so close to my heart, is now real. For years, I wished that I could create a platform that would champion reading in a child’s life. Finally, the stars have aligned, and together we are shining a little light into what seems like a dark world.

I’m Jenn Naughton, Previously a book reviewer, I became a full-time mother and homeschooling teacher to my five kids in 2001. An avid reader, I am passionate about literacy.

Our Manifesto

The Book is Always Better Than the Movie

Everyone is a Potential Reader. We’ll help you find the right book.

Fictional bookseller Kathleen Kelly was correct: “When you read a book as a child it becomes part of your identity, in a way that no other reading in your life does.” – You’ve Got Mail
